I bought this on ebay this week as a newly listed Buy It Now for £120 which I was more than happy to pay as they really are hard to find sealed like this. It arrived today and imagine my joy as it included the original mailing box which is as rare as hens teeth. No mention or pictures of it in the listing.

Same here for mw and congrats on such a great item, it's amazing these mailers didn't survive more but I guess as kids we just looked at it as a white plain box and it was all the about the figure....the fools we were! :lol:

These are my latest arrivals via Iain Sanderson! What a legend he is

The skiff is a vintage one which i got for $20 on eBay us!

Despite some toasty bubbles, these all arrived intact!!

The Anakin sticker offer focus is off to a great start!



A $20 Skiff?! How on earth did that happen?

Would the Stormtrooper’s have come on cards on in baggies?


All the Canadian SO's came on cardback. The only exception to this is the Dewback (baggy Stormtrooper).

This particular one came with 2x 20back Canadian Stormtroopers.

Most are from Sears, though a couple of other Canadian outlets also had special offers.

The old overstock items would have a special offer assigned to it, tape cut, 1 or 2 mocs added inside and then retaped and distributed. So you will notice on one end of the majority of SO's there will be double tape.

This is a brilliant site for all things Canadian http://web.ncf.ca/cn333/so.htm


Many thanks for the information and the link.

They don’t come up all that often so imagine they’re a bit pricier than the blondes. I’ve seen a couple go for around £100 plus on FB. Mind you the no Coo light Brown hair can go for those kind of prices on eBay too :o

That Weequay bubble is super clear! Lovely to see there's some nice clean rotj bubbles out there.


Just recieved another Special Offer Canadian item - so can chalk that one off the list now. 9 or 10 down, loads still to go!

Now to find 2x 20bk Canadian Stormtroopers....

Super happy.

As usual some fantastic pick ups there 8)

I decided a while ago to try and start a run of 20/21 backs , reseals of course, and over a loooong period.

I had a chat with Ian (palifan) and was lucky enough to source some pieces from him, one of which I am waiting for the figure to arrive to put into the card and bubble, for me a special one, but I'll wait and pop that on here.

The other two Ian was great on in regard to describing and sending pics, and did for a great price.

So these 2 are added now I will have 5 ( Pali and Kenner mixed)

Love these 2.... massive Thankyou to Ian :)
